The number and variety of art galleries in Salt Lake City can be surprising, but until recently, we haven’t had large studio buildings where artists can work under the same roof and feed off each other’s collective creative energies. Since 2000, Brad Slaugh has operated Poor Yorick Studios, a place for artists to have space to bring their visual inspirations to fruition. Initially housing two-dozen artists, it’s burgeoned to more than 40. Twice a year, Slaugh has an open house for visitors to come into the space, meet the artists, see how they work and have some artsy snacks. It’s a way to get introduced to artwork outside the sometimes formal gallery setting and includes some of the most innovative local artists, including Joey Behrens’ finely detailed cityscapes, Mark England’s surreal topographies, Lenka Konopasek’s paintings influenced by tragedies of European history, and Slaugh’s surreal portraits. It’s almost enough to make you want to pick up a paintbrush.

Poor Yorick Studio Opening, 126 W. Crystal Ave. (2590 South), 801-759-8681, March 27, 6-10 p.m.; March 28, 1-5 p.m. PoorYorickStudios.com.
